Amos 3:3 - My Lord and I.

Amos 3:3 (NIV) Do two walk together unless 
they have agreed to do so? 


   Someone once asked the conductor Leonard 
Bernstein, What is the hardest instrument to 
   Second fiddle, he said. I can 
always get plenty of first violinists, but to find 
one who plays second violin with as much 
enthusiasm or second French horn or second flute, now 
thats a problem. And yet if no one plays second, 
we have no harmony. 
   The same principle applies to walking 
with God. If we want to walk with God, then we 
need to get in sync with Him, walking together as 
a single unit. The Bible says, Can two walk 
together, unless they are agreed? (Amos 3:3 NKJV). 
   For instance, if you were sitting in a 
canoe paddling one direction while someone else in 
the canoe was paddling another, that would 
impair your performance, wouldnt it? 
   Likewise, to walk with God means to be in 
rhythm with God, to keep pace with God, to be in 
harmony with God. It means communicating with Him, 
speaking to Him, and hearing from Him. 
   We find references to walking with God 
many times in the New Testament. For example, 
Colossians 2:6 tells us, As you therefore have 
received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him 
(NKJV). And 1 John 1:7 says, But if we walk in 
the light as He is in the light, we have 
fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus 
Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin (NKJV). 
   Also, Galatians 5 reminds us, Walk in 
the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust 
of the flesh (verse 16 NKJV). 
   To walk with God is to stay in harmony 
with Him. It isnt saying, God, heres 
where Im going. Come with me. Rather, we 
should say, Lord, where are You going? I want to 
go with You. That is the picture of walking 
with God. [Greg Laurie from Harvest Ministries; 


Shall two walk together at all, if they do 
not know one another?" To "walk together" with 
God means, not an occasional act, but a 
continuing habit that issues from an established 
relation. It means a companionship based upon a mutual 
harmony of mind and spirit. Two people must go in 
the same direction if they are to walk 
"together." [SDA Bible Commentary]  

They could not expect communion with God, 
unless they first sought peace with him. Where 
there is not friendship, there can be no 
fellowship. God and man cannot walk together, except 
they are agreed. Unless we seek his glory, we 
cannot walk with him. [Matthew Henry Commentary]  

   Enoch walked with God. He was of one mind 
with God. The prophet asks, "Can two walk 
together, except they be agreed?" If we are of one 
mind with God, our will will be swallowed up in 
God's will and we shall follow wherever God leads 
the way. As a loving child places his hand in 
that of his father, and walks with him in perfect 
trust whether it is dark or bright, so the sons 
and daughters of God are to walk with Jesus 
through joy or sorrow.  
   Through faith in Christ the true 
Christian knows the mind and will of God. He 
understands by a living experience something of the 
length and depth and breadth and height of the love 
of God that passeth knowledge. 
   The soul that loves God loves to draw 
strength from Him by constant communion with Him. 
When it becomes the habit of the soul to converse 
with God, the power of the evil one is broken, 
for Satan cannot abide near the soul that draws 
nigh unto God. If Christ is your companion, you 
will not cherish vain and impure thoughts; you 
will not indulge in trifling words that will 
grieve Him who has come to be the sanctifier of 
your soul.  
   Those who are sanctified through the 
truth are living recommendations of its power, and 
representatives of their risen Lord. The religion of Christ 
will refine the taste, sanctify the judgment, 
elevate, purify, and ennoble the soul, making the 
Christian more and more fit for the society of the 
heavenly angels. [www.bibleuniverse.com] 

Priscilla is inseparable from her husband 
because "their two hearts beat as one."  They walked 
as one, for they had mutually agreed to put 
Christ first.  They were one in marital bliss, in 
their secular occupation, in their friendship with 
Paul, and in their service to the church.  The 
oneness of Priscilla and Acquila shame the 
self-centeredness of our day.  We spend much of our time 
demanding our own way, and striving for 
self-recognition.  Throughout the history of Christianity, 
however, the truly great characters have always been 
simple and humble men and women.  Will you be 
listed among the simple and humble in the Lord's 
records? [In His Time; Walk With Wisdom re 1Co.16:19]
